What behaviors are allowed?

Child watch is a unique environment. Many ages are combined and because of this we adhere to the following behavior policy:

Child Watch staff will use redirection to discourage inappropriate behavior.

Children harming themselves, harming others, or being disrespectful to the staff, facility, equipment, and members will result in disciplinary actions.

Repeated offenses will result in suspension or expulsion from Child Watch. Suspension will be used if the child continues to use aggressive behavior.

  • First offense: A discussion with the Child Watch Supervisor. Further action may be taken based upon the severity of the behavior, up to a one-week suspension.
  • Second Offense: One-week suspension.
  • Third offense: Removal from the Child Watch indefinitely.

If a child is crying inconsolably for up to 10 minutes, we'll call the parent or guardian.
